Josh Gibson Unused Game Ticket

Josh Gibson Unused Game Ticket

Ineffably rare complete, unused ticket from a game between Santurce and Ponce -- when for all of 27 cents the natives got to watch the “Black Babe Ruth” in action. Gibson, who probably couldn’t wait to sample the island’s many cervesas and hot senoritas, was among the first of the wave of Negro leaguers who streamed in for the league’s first year of existence to make a few extra bucks under the swaying palms, along with fellow HOFers Satchel Paige (Guayama) and Leon Day (Aguadilla). This not only began a tradition that endured well into the ‘50s but began Santurce’s reign as the kings of the island, its 1954-55 team featuring an outfield that included both Willie Mays and native icon Roberto Clemente. Pink tinted ducat from December 24th (1.75 x 4.25”) is stamped “Liga Semi-Pro de Base-Ball de Puerto Rico” in black and “Parque de Ponce” and “Santurce vs. Ponce” in red. EX-MT and a nifty piece of Gibson esoterica from those hazy, crazy days on the island.
